Pa. GOP insiders are plotting an 11th-hour
plan to stop Doug Mastriano in the governor’s race

Pennsylvania Republican insiders are making a last-ditch effort to rally behind a single candidate in the gubernatorial primary – and defeat the front-runner, Doug Mastriano. Republican leaders are trying to corral Mastriano’s four leading rivals to urge all but one of them to drop out — and endorse the one with the best poll numbers. One version of the proposal calls for rallying behind former U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, who was well-liked by former President Donald Trump and polling in second place in the latest public survey. It’s a long-shot ploy a week before the primary that many Republicans believe


Sounds like a never-Trump crowd is trying to interfere with the PA primary.

God bless Mastriano. We were all glued to our computer screens when he held hearings and illuminated the steal of the 2020. Bared it all before an incredulous nation. Now only the GOPe can get in his way. Barletta should join Mastriano's admin and tell the gope to go to someplace way too hot.

Yet another story that states "Baseless claims of election irregularities"...from yet another outlet that has NEVER looked at the basis for those "Claims". The difference between "News" and Opinion is...adjectives. News doesn't use them. You only use modifiers if you are trying to modify opinions with your story.

God help each and everyone of us in PA if he is elected as the republican choice. This man voted for Act 77 not just once but twice. His vote opened the doors to voter fraud. Then he runs around PA saying "How did that happen". I'm against anything that the PAGOP does. I pray for us in PA that Doug does not get the election. As for Barletta, he is close to useless. We are doomed.

I have to admit, if the GOP leadership hates Mastriano, I am favorably inclined. I'm simply not convinced, at this point. And No. 4, Pennsylvania was probably one of the most corrupt States back at the Revolution. It's never changed.

Doug is NOT a far-right candidate. PA 77 (enacted in 2019) mandates that only REQUESTED mail-in ballots will be counted, whereby Pennsylvania joined 31 other states that have this requirement. Doug led a strong effort in PA to have a full Arizona style AUDIT (not a recount) of the 2020 presidential election, which effort was resisted by the Pennsylvania GOPe. Democrats are falsely claiming that Doug wants to ban ALL abortions in PA. He favors allowing abortions up until a physician can detect a fetal heartbeat. Of all the Republican candidates running for Governor of Pennsylvania, Doug's policies are the closest to Donald Trump's.

The 'irregularities' in the vote for President in Pennsylvania were created by Governor Wolf and his appointed Secretary of State, and affirmed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, even though the changes in voting were in violation of the Pennsylvania constitution. And it didn't help that the U.S. Supreme Court punted...

Democrat Adam Frisch, who's hoping to run for the U.S. House of Representatives seat held by Rep. Lauren Boebert, said Thursday he wants to make amends with a Pueblo restaurant and other businesses that were affected by a "muck-up" during his kickoff election tour of Colorado. Frisch planned to stop at barbecue restaurants in towns and cities in Colorado District 3, which Boebert currently represents, on a 1,100-mile campaign tour last week. But poor communication and even worse research led to parts of the tour, including the Pueblo leg, being disastrous. Before the tour, Frisch was told that his campaign

Though Turkey has officially supported enlargement since it joined NATO 70 years ago, its opposition could pose a problem for Sweden and Finland given new members need unanimous agreement. Finland's plan to apply for NATO membership, announced Thursday, and the expectation that Sweden will follow, would bring about the expansion of the Western military alliance that Russian President Vladimir Putin aimed to prevent by launching

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Rep.

Budd, the 13th District representative from Advance who earned Trump’s endorsement and has millions in super PAC money to spend, now has the support of 43% of Republican voters, based on the most recent WGHP/The Hill/Emerson College Poll, a 5-point increase from the first poll conducted in April.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director used an interview on CNN to reveal he does not want to serve under the former president if he is re-elected in 2024 and would likely resign. “If Trump were to return to the White House as President, and COVID was still a threat or there was some other public health emergency, would you have confidence in his ability to deal with a pandemic of this nature?
